Hard Start

Hi all

Have a 2007 FT with 120k km’s. Vehicle has difficulty some mornings starting. Battery only a year old and been tested/checked and put under load - not the battery.

Vehicle has just been to service and glow plugs checked and not that either. Toyota dealership not sure what is causing the starting issue and luckily enough it did that whilst I was booking the vehicle in for the service for them to hear the issue.

Any ideas or advise?

Does it crank easy or sound the starter is not turning fast enough?
Does it crank long?
When it start, any smoke? Or missfire?
